Freshman Writing Seminar

Each year numerous introductory courses, designated Freshman Writing Seminars, provide entering students the opportunity to develop particular abilities in a small class setting along with fellow freshmen who are making the transition to college work. Intended as introductions to the collegiate experience, these courses are limited in enrollment to seventeen freshmen and are offered in a variety of disciplines. In general, they serve as introductions to those disciplines. Particular attention is given to the effective expression of ideas in both written and oral work.

All entering freshmen are required to complete at least one Freshman Writing Seminar during their first year. The Freshman Writing Seminar offerings are listed every year in the Freshman Handbook.
